    A courageous conversation with Adam Sud on overcoming addiction and finding comfort in discomfort

    A courageous conversation with Adam Sud on overcoming addiction and finding comfort in discomfort

    Welcome to the second episode of the Brain Health and Beyond Podcast! Our guest for this episode is our dear friend, Adam Sud, who is an international speaker for awareness of mental health and addiction. In 2012, Adam’s life was completely out of control. He was struggling with multiple addictions, serious chronic diseases, and mental health disorders. His life nearly ended when he attempted suicide by drug overdose. He checked into rehab and with the help of his parents and by adopting a plant-based diet, he began a journey that led to a remarkable recovery. He is now a diabetes and food addiction coach for Mastering Diabetes (masteringdiabetes.org), which is a program that focuses on reversing insulin resistance using low fat, whole food, plant-based nutrition. He also works with Engine2 and Whole Foods Market’s Total Health Immersion Team. He is an amazing force behind the plant-based movement and has worked in recovery centers using plant-based nutrition as an adjunct tool for recovery and relapse prevention. He has also founded a non-profit that is dedicated to advancing research on diet and mental health/addiction. He firmly believes that the simplest of things, done consistently, can make the most profound change of your life and that self-love is the root of all recovery.

    Averting the Tsunami of Alzheimer's

    Averting the Tsunami of Alzheimer's

    In this episode, we discuss Alzheimer’s disease, genetics, the myths around them, and our evidence-based plan for preserving brain health and preventing disease. We call it the NEURO plan. It’s a personalized, comprehensive plan that will give you the power to not only avoid catastrophic diseases like Dementia and stroke, but to continue to manifest the full capacity of your amazing brain at any age. You will quickly learn that our plan is not based on some gimmick or a vitamin regimen, but relies on behavioral models that have been shown to provide habit pathways that build brain capacity at any age. We hope you enjoy this episode!

    Science under attack - the battle between past-protectors and future seekers

    In this episode we took on, what we consider, one of the most important challenges of our time - an attack on science, in this case specifically nutrition science, at a time when what we choose to eat can have profound effect on our health, environment and the health of the next generation. We hope you enjoy this episode and continue the conversation.

    Stress Proof Your Life with Dr. Mithu Storoni

    In this episode, we a had an amazing conversation with Dr. Mithu Storoni, the author of Stress-Proof. Mithu received her medical degree from the University Cambridge and has published papers across the fields of neuroscience, neurology and neuro-ophthalmology. She is a brilliant scientist trained in eye surgery, has a PhD in Neuro-ophthalmology, and was previously a Clinical Research Fellow at the National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery in Queen Square, London where she studies pupillometry looking at the relationship between the pupillary response and stress! Mithu spent a few years trawling through all the scientific research she could find on stress before writing Stress-Proof, a science-based guide based on data from over 500 published studies. We hope you enjoy this conversation and will share it with loved ones who will benefit from her knowledge and experience.

    How to Differentiate Truth From The Lies That Maintain The Current Model of Sick Care - with Dr. David Katz

    Friends,
    We are so excited to present this episode! We had the pleasure of sitting down with Dr. David Katz, a remarkable physician-scientist who has changed the paradigm of our understanding of chronic diseases. His biography is quite extensive and his list of accomplishments are long, and this section would look like a book if we listed them here. He is one of the most prominent science communicators of our times, a thought leader in preventive medicine and health promotion, and has authored multiple books, research articles and textbooks. His latest book, The Truth About Food, is an exceptional resource for those who want to get a deeper understanding of the role of nutrition and true health, and how good science that be differentiated from pseudoscience. 
    You can order his book on Amazon by clicking HERE.

    Please follow and support his work as the Founder and President of the nonprofit, True Health Initiative on Facebook and Instagram.

12/2021 Interview with Brenda Davis, RD

How wonderful that top professionals such as yourselves are encouraging lifestyle as a major component to our overall well-being. Your work with patients at Loma Linda and Brenda Davis’ work in the Marshall Islands are concrete examples of ways medical providers (and in my opinion public servants) provide value to underserved and neglected communities/peoples . We Can begin to build agency towards self awareness and empowerment in the area of health. Thank you for this interview and this particular podcast.

Fantastic podcast!!!

I’m currently on episode 11, and am playing catch up! What I really love about this podcast is that many times the host which are doctors end up interviewing other doctors, super credible.

I’ve been paying attention to the Seventh-Day Adventist (SDA) health message (which began in the mid 1800s) for the past 20 years and I believe that by paying attention to their health message my overall diet and health has greatly improved. What I find fascinating is how the SDA faith appears to be the only Protestant Christian faith that teaches and keeps the original biblical diet (which was a whole food plant based diet)! What history has shown is that God had always had a remnant group of followers, and currently that group, SDA, is blessed with long life and good health! Don’t believe me? Go read the science and study the blue zones. 😉

Happy calc app ,

Unable to play episodes

I have really enjoyed the first several episodes I have listened to, but for the last several days, when I click on an episode to listen, it says the podcasts are unavailable. Have they been removed? Still many I had hoped to listen to.
